I’m writing another book! It’s a book about writing books (so meta!).
The working title is The Busy Woman’s Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book. This has been outlined and partially drafted and sitting in my Evernote files for years.
It feels so good to get this project off the way back burner and onto my current work flow. It feels good to put all the things I have been sharing with clients and teaching in classes into a form that so many more people can access. To me, this is a legacy project that will live beyond me and hopefully – as the title suggests – change the world.
Many of my clients are at the place where it’s time to do their legacy work. They’ve become experts in their field, and the time is ripe to extend their knowledge to a greater audience.
It’s not always easy to add a legacy project to our docket. But it’s ultimately worth it.
I know myself – I am most fulfilled and happy when I have a big project to work on. Last year I wrote Visit Paris Like an Artist and it was such fun to bring the ideas inside me out to the world.
I am using the Atelier to stay on track (I’m easily distracted by new projects). In February I will be doing 15 minute daily writing bursts to make even more progress.
What about you? What legacy project are you bringing out of the closet, dusting off and engaging with? If it’s a writing project, you might want to join us to write every day in February.
The Devoted Writer helps writers of all genres and levels get their words out with ease. And there are always a lot of non-writers in my classes, too. Everyone has to write, and this is the perfect way to finally get butt-in-chair time.
Join a global group of dedicated writers and me for a powerful writing month like none other. All the details are here.
